Subject Re: ant doesn't compile classes in sample application
Date Wed, 27 Sep 2000 00:00:27 GMT

Thanks for the reply. There were some dependency problems.

I tried running the stock build script in the sample directory -- ant seemed
to be failing silently by not reporting trouble compiling the servlets.

I fixed the problem by building ant to /opt/ant, and changing the $CP variable
in the build script to point to $ANT_HOME/lib/ant.jar instead of the ant.jar
that ships with tomcat. For some reason I also had the specify an XML Parser
(xerces) after making this change to $CP.
